In the Solar PEIS, the BLM committed to establishing a solar regional mitigation strategy (SRMS) for each solar energy zone (SEZ). These regional mitigation strategies are expected to simplify and improve the mitigation process for future solar projects in SEZs.
In early 2016, the BLM began to develop the solar regional mitigation strategy (SRMS) for the Afton SEZ in New Mexico. SRMS development will be a public, stakeholder driven process. There will be opportunities to attend meetings and otherwise provide input as the SRMS is developed.
